I have read the mountain, no mountain, mountain tale in Japanese and Korean Buddhism.

Also, I know it says "Oh Juanita/Wanita", in the song,
but the monks of the Pure Land school of Buddhism in Japan believe that if a person says the name of the Buddha, Amita (or Amitabha) even ONCE in a lifetime, they will be released from the cycle of life and death, and be reborn in the "Pure Land".

Amitabha tha blue bouddha of medecine saved my life once,a few years ago,he was the only who intervened in seconds knowing it had to be done urgent,and I'll never forget him for that, and I suppose He meant there were valid reasons to be on earth a while longer...
